    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    I have the PartsExpress cable with microphone, and one connection is less 'positive' and falls out easily, usually in storage, but haven't fiddled enough to tell if it's cable or pod.

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    Are you inverting the speakers so the memory section goes up & over to hold them? I tried that with the stock tips but the nozzle angle didn't work.

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    Yes - very convenient. My advice for anybody ordering the M300 is to also get these wings and a lightweight replacement cable, (my choice: https://www.parts-express.com/talent-ebc-02-replacement-mmcx-cable-with-mic-for-in-ear-monitors--233-188) burn in and rock out. The stock cable has a firmer...

    Monolith M300 In Ear Planar Earphones

    I dug around in my audiobox and came up with these:https://amzn.to/2AfzUSx that are working pretty well so far. I have the Bose-style tips too, but have not tried them, since these fit.

    Master & Dynamic MW07 connectivity

    Followup - the MW07 claimed battery life is shorter than most others, and I have not tested with notes, but that matches my experience. This is relevant because the battery level is shown on the 'phone as an icon, and it seems that when the battery level gets into the 30% range, reconnecting is...

    Master & Dynamic MW07 connectivity

    Hey Y'all, I searched the site several ways and did not find a thread dedicated to these, apologies if I missed it. SO, I have a fairly good collection of over-ear and IEMs, but resisted the Truly Wireless because Bluetooth. Black Friday changed my mind and I picked up the Master & Dynamic...

    LG V10 - activating High Impedance Mode! (Not just AUX mode...)

    OK, thanks. I see what you're talking about when using my 80ohm Senn DT770s, but not with the Ei.XX, which Custom Art lists as 60ohm. Connecting a 3.5mm TRS 30cm adapter puts the V10 in Aux mode, which, I've read elsewhere, is the same as High Impedance mode. Assuming the DAC knows what it's...

    Introducing Lola, a new headphone from Blue Microphones

    My girlfriend bought me the Mo-Fis for Christmas right after debut, and I really liked the sound, but the weight of the headband was just stupid.   What are the chances of the Lola headband + Mo-Fi becoming the Mo-Fi 2.0?   I'd be back QUICK.   -G

    GRADO GR10: Reviews, First Impressions Thread

    For anyone who has wondered about custom-molded tips/cushions for GR10/8, behold:     I just picked up my Westone custom ported earplugs today, and noticed that the removable filter nozzle looked pretty big, just right to accept the GR10 nozzle.   You still need to go to an audiologist...

    Onkyo teams up with Iron Maiden

    No sign of these 30 days before Christmas, which means as a consumer electronics product, its basically a fail. Given their fanbase, the cans will sell whenever they drop, but missing the holiday season is a huge mistake.

    Mr. Speakers Alpha Dogs cable microphonics

    This just now from Mr Speaker:   "Hi Graham,   Thanks for the interest!  Our 1/4" cable is smooth and the 3.5mm is woven, so which you use depends on your system. You can always use a 1/4” to 3.5mm adaptor….   Cheers,   Dan"

    Mr. Speakers Alpha Dogs cable microphonics

    Hrm... do the Alpha pads help at-all?   My headphone collection is cluttered with closed-back cans that have this problem (SOL, Senn, Lafayette, LSTN). I enjoy my Grado 325s and Koss ESPs quite a lot, but sometimes really want bass like only closed can deliver.   Is cable noise just a...

    Mr. Speakers Alpha Dogs cable microphonics

    Every cable I have with this sort of sheathing has remarkable microphonics, which is to be expected since it's the opposite of smooth, and each fiber creates noise when it touches anything.   Woven sheathing: Improved durability Resists tangles & kinks Looks really cool Transmits...

    Favrite price promotion for Hisound’s upcoming new Nova player

    Does anyone have playlists working on the N1?   I use MediaMonkey for creation/mangement and have tried many options, with no success. The player won't even see the files.   If you have one working, Post/share so we can sort of reverse-engineer lists for ourselves.   Thanks!
